Business Description

Post Office with good additional ancillary sales in desirable Edinburgh suburb. Good sized modern freehold property. Current Post Office remuneration circa. £35,000. Good ancillary sales/Thorntons franchise. Very desirable location. Scope to develop existing trade.

Colinton Post Office has been trading from its current location since 2009 when the previous owner relocated from a nearby smaller property to allow the development of the ancillary retail trade.

Our clients have owned the business in its current format since 2013 and have reluctantly placed the business on the market to concentrate on other business interests. The demographics of the area dictate that the Post Office is a vital service to the community and in turn with the popular Thorntons franchise and the high quality cards and gifts on offer make the business a desirable opportunity.

Latterly, the business has been run primarily under management with the owners only spending a limited time in the business. It is thought that an owner operator could develop this opportunity and increase both turnover and profits.

Leasehold option also available - £25,000 premium/£12,000 p.a. rent.
